Once Upon A Time...
... there was a Kingdom called Ilena. It was a wealthy kingdom where the king looked after his people. There were still the rich and poor, there was still crime, but he sought to listen to everyone and try his best to rule fairly. He respected his people and they respected him. His name was King Silas. King Silas had a beautiful wife, his queen, called Evelyn. Together they had a beautiful daughter called Marianne.
King Silas had everything he could ever want. When you have everything you ever wanted it can also be taken away. One stormy night, Evelyn was trying to calm Marianne down between the pounding of the rain and loud thunderclaps. Both mother and child were unaware that there was an intruder lurking in the shadows.
One minute the queen was alive, holding her daughter, the next she was dead on the ground, the baby gone from her arms and the intruder gone.
Ayia is the neighbouring kingdom to Ilena. There the King is greedy and unjust. He makes his people suffer. The people hate him, but do not have the power to overthrow him. Any crime committed against the King is the death penalty, no matter how big or small.
King Daven is a name to be hated and feared.
He to has a queen and also a three year old son. The queen is heavily pregnant with a child.
One night the queen and said unborn child die. However a few days later there is a daughter in the kingdom. The queen died in childbirth, however the baby apparently survived and the prince has a little sister. Shane and Jasmine.
Now to present day...
King Silas has never gotten over his missing daughter. Each year he has sent a group of his best knights to search for her. On the anniversary of her disappearance he calls them forth with the same mission, to go to a new land and see if any clues can be gathered. So far no luck. However now the King is sending them to Ayia.
Will they find the missing princess there?
Meanwhile, in Ayia, Jasmine is now eighteen. She is a young adult yet has never been outside of the kingdom. She knows nothing of the horrors outside the walls of the castle. She innocently thinks things are perfect, just as her father and brother and all the other people tell her. She wants to go out and see the world but is forbidden.
As the princess, she is kept out of the 'dangers'. So instead she fills her time watching the knights train - she has her eye on a particular knight, a friend of her brother's Garrick. Unbeknownst to her, someone has their eye on her - her brother. Prince Shane is as horrible as his father, though not in front of his sister. He is also in love with her and wants to keep the bloodline pure.
Jasmine has no idea that she does not belong here. She has no idea that she is not Ayia royalty. She has no idea that people are looking for her. And she has no idea of the true danger she is really in.
Can she be found before it is too late?
Hello! If you made it this far, welcome to my thread.
Hopefully I haven't intimidated you. I know the above can be a lot of information.
I better move on to what I am looking for. So, this is going to be a multi character role play so if you are only happy to play one character, this may not be the story for you.
I consider myself an advanced roleplayer. I'm not a nut about grammar or spelling, just ask that it's decent for the most part. After all, everyone makes mistakes. I can post anything from a paragraph to ten depending on the scene and dialogue. I try to match my partner. I can also post at least once a day. I'm currently on holiday for just over a week and a half and so I should be able to post several times a day currently. Saying that I can also be busy so that could change. When I go back to work though posts could be limited to at least once a day.
The main characters for this roleplay are Jasmine/Marianne which I will be playing. I will also most likely take on her brother, Shane, her father's both King Silas and King Daven (unless you are happy to take on any of them) and some NPCs.
The character(s) I'm looking for you to play as the main character, is one of the knights from the group of Ilenian knights that ar tasked with looking for clues to the missing princess. I imagine them to be a group of four or five, so I expect this to be split between us. All of that we can work out in an OOC chat though.
Now onto the next point. Magic. This is a fantasy/medieval RP but I want to try adding a magic element to it. Not everyone in this world has magic. Knights tend to be the ones that have magic for defence, and are taught how to access it by knights before them, to defend the royal kingdom. There is also offensive magic, balls of energy used for attacks. There are powerful magicians in the lands that can do a lot more, but when the knights are taught they are taut only basics for attack and defence. This is something we can develop and discuss OOC to, as your character will have magic, and so we can develop magical abilities.
Hmm... what next? I think that is all. So if you are still here... yay! And if you're still interested double yay!
PM me your interest and we can start plotting!
